X- you should be in charge of his fan club.  ;)
LOL! I wouldn't say I was a fan, but I am impressed with the media event that he's pulling off. I don't think he's any more crazy than he was 10 years ago or 20 years ago. Like then, he's doing what he does best and capitalizing on his image. It's how he scored major league and other films.

I do respect that he's doing it all sober. Anyone can pull of these antics drunk, but it's a skill to do it sober and still get all of this press.

CBS clearly is willing to accept the losses that come from putting a premature end to a hit program, they've put their money where their mouths are.  We'll see how far Charlie Sheen's self proclaimed concern for all the cast and crew of his show goes.  If he is willing to shut his mouth, get clean, and do his job by finishing out his contract, then it wouldn't surprise me if CBS allows 2 1/2 Men to continue.  My gut tells me that Charlie's ego is too huge to let this happen though, and as he continues his campaign to embarrass and harrass his bosses via the media they'll just call it a day and cut their losses.

It's hard not to be judgemental when you see a public figure barely coherent, advocating drug fueled mania and cohabitation with two ex porn actresses as a "winning" lifestyle, but live and let live I guess.

I don't think that the careers of the woman ( I don't think that both did porn) has anything to do with it. We all have history in our lives, be it exciting or mundane. I'm not going to judge anyone's career path.

You also have to remember that Lorre fired the first shot in his battle with Sheen by publicly putting this on TV:

CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS, #329

I exercise regularly. I eat moderate amounts of healthy food. I make sure to get plenty of rest. I see my doctor once a year and my dentist twice a year. I floss every night. I've had chest x–rays, cardio stress tests, EKG's and colonoscopies. I see a psychologist and have a variety of hobbies to reduce stress. I don't drink. I don't smoke. I don't do drugs. I don't have crazy, reckless sex with strangers.

If Charlie Sheen outlives me, I'm gonna be really pissed.

which has now lead to this:

Surprise! Charlie Sheen Could Be Returning To Two And A Half Men Shortly
Mar. 7, 2011, 2:08 PM | 1,746 |   1

The companies that benefit from Two and a Half Men's excellent ratings are exploring ways to clear hurdle that is preventing Charlie Sheen from returning to the hit sitcom.
RadarOnline reports CBS and Warner Bros. Television are considering replacing Chuck Lorre in an attempt to appease the actor who called the show's co-creator and writer a "stupid, stupid little man and a ... punk that I'd never want to be like."
The plan calls for Sheen-approved consulting producer Don Reo to take over as head writer/producer for the hit show. The creator of M.A.S.H., The Golden Girls, and Blossom among others penned two episodes of Two and a Half Men last season and three in season seven. He would oversee production of the CBS ratings machine.
The move would allow Lorre to step away from the day-to-day operations and spend his time working with The Big Bang Theory and Mike & Molly, two other shows he created. His pay for Two and a Half Men wouldn't change.

I'm not sure if you have access to inside information that the rest of the world doesn't have, but if not then simplifying the situation by suggesting that "this" directly led to "that", considering these two men have worked together for almost a decade is a bit misleading.

Take a closer look at that decade in Mr. Sheen's life.  He's a hairs breath away from losing his job, has restraining orders preventing him from seeing his children, recently was accused of domestic violence for holding a knife to his ex wife's throat, has a sordid history of violence against women, in and out of rehab for cocaine addiction, car accidents, arrests.  His own father recently publicly called him an addict.

I'm not impressed, not at all.

Regardless of whether he is drinking, isn't, or doing drugs, or not, his erratic behavior and lack of judgement around his kids is what got them taken away from him. I would think that a person who loved his kids would see this as a wake up call. If this was a publicity stunt it was certainly costly, and something must have concerned the child welfare authorities enough to take his kids away or they would not have done it.

Also getting rid of Chuck Lorrie to placate Charlie Sheen so they can continue to make money off of him may be great for the studio and Charlie in the Short term, but could also be very Damaging to him if he does have a problem, Taking his kids away would seem to indicate that their is concern on some level about what is going on.

If what he is doing is a publicity  stunt , its brilliant on one level, but may be too costly if he loses his kids over it. While past behavior isn't always a prediction of future behavior, it is an indication that it could be, His problems with alcohol and drugs is an ongoing issue and just because he is not using drugs at the moment doesn't mean he hadn't earlier or will not in the future. Like most celebrities, he likes to work and play hard, and when he does do drugs and alcohol he does it to the extream and that is where the problem is. If he is not careful he could very well end his life Like Micheal Jackson did and that would truly be a loss for him and his kids.

In His case, I don't think so or for Lindsay Lohan either, their drunken and drug escapades are well known to everyone.  Besides bad judgement, allot of their troubles can be traced back to their use of both drugs and alcohol.

You couldn't pay me enough $$ to be associated with that show or anything similar of its kind.  I would never want it on my resume.

I highly doubt that statement. I'm willing to bet that there is NO One on this board that wouldn't do the show for something as "little" as 40k and episode.

Show me someone willing to pass up that and I'll show you a fool. At 40k per ep, that more than a million a year. Hell, I'd do it for 10k and a trailer.

Yeah, from what I've seen of his show most of his lines are delivered in straight faced glassy eyed monotone.  I don't get the appeal.  His recent cameo in "Money Never Sleeps" was basically a parody of his current public persona.  I thought that was a shame because I really enjoyed his performance in the original film.
